Wet/Dry filter to Canister filter

Hi all,
There is currently a diy wet/dry filter sump in my setup. I would like to change it to a canister filter. I hope that it would be safe to do it in the following steps:
1. Take half of filter media from existing wet/dry filter and add them to the canister.
2. Run the canister along with wet/dry filter for 2 weeks.
3. Transfer the remaining filter media from wet/dry and add it to the canister and remove the wet/dry filter out of the system.
hope this procedure is fine?
if this info helps: 44gallon, low light planted tank, fish load is currently max.
